Third-Party JavaScript (2013)

In 2011 (or 2012, I can't recall anymore) Ben was contacted by Manning to either review or proof-read their book. We were sitting around at the Disqus office when he joked about us sending Manning a proposal and write a book. We've been doing a lot of experimentation with third-party JavaScript back then since Disqus was a third-party widget, browsers were not that good at cross-domain communication, and that kind of knowledge was pretty dispersed. The book made sense.

Author copies Manning sent me after our book had been published.

Writing a book is a lot of work! When we finally finished the manuscript, we both vowed to never write another book again. I kept that vow for about five months until I started working on Beautiful JavaScript.
